Both are the most superb slice-of-life that i have ever read. each manga has its own unique atmosphere and tells you wonderful storys that when they end you fell all fuzzy and warm inside.

Another light-hearted slice of life title. Stress-free yet not saccharine, it's perfect for the jaded manga reader or anybody who wishes to see the world in a new light.

Both are brilliant manga from the slice-of-life genius Hitoshi Ashinano. Much like Aria or Kino's Journey, the story is not the focus - the setting is. They are built entirely upon atmosphere. Give 'em a read on a quiet morning or a rainy day and you will surely be pulled into their world.

Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou is definitely more moe and more apocalyptic than YKK, but the tone of the manga are remarkably similar. Those interested in post-apocalyptic iyashikei would be well served by going back and reading the original of that apparent genre as well as the newest entry.

Both stories trace the memories of a cute and charismatic female. Omoide Emanon looks into the past while YKK ponders time's end. If you enjoyed YKK's understated artstyle and gentle pacing, you'll find similar enjoyment in Emanon.

Local legends and supernatural phenomena; just another day in the lives of the characters of Mushishi and YKK.

Two slice of life titles with similarities in their premises. Both stories show human civilization as we know it coming to an end and through the course of the series, the characters learn to treasure apparently mundane experiences and to value life for its evanescence. While Ai-Ren is much more didactic with it's somewhat verbose narration and extreme situations, Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou makes use of more subtle imagery and dialogue to deliver it's message.

both are slice of life with an android as a main character

Beautiful drawings. Appreciate the little things in life. Scooter (Vespa) Girls! ^^

Both are excellent examples of slice-of-life done well. Gentle storytelling, combined with minimal dialogue (allowing the pictures to tell the story), pictures that do indeed paint a 1000 words and an overwhelming sense of peace and harmony, make these a delight to read. The Walking Man has the advantage that it does not have the same gentle melancholy that YKK has, making it a more uplifting read that reminds us all the we need to stop and smell the flowers more often.

Both are slice-of-life, and both involve cafes (kind of). Shirley has a similar feeling to YKK in manys ways, and although YKK [i]is[/i] the better of the two, Shirley is still worth reading. 
reportRecommended by Archaeon
Atmospheric and built with a elegant slice of life tone, both series follows a story with a lot of realism. They don't have particular complicated storytelling but the style of their premise holds great promise. The character relationships are also well performed.

Both YKK and Marie no Kanaderu Ongaku is about the decay of humanity and how to deal with it, set in a post-apocalyptic world. Both contain fantastic art, but most of all, they are extremely emotionally touching. Marie no Kanaderu Ongaku is much shorter, it can be a good start.  
reportRecommended by txrxgxu
Low-key slice of life series centered around cafes. 
reportRecommended by Babby-Princess
Even if they belong to different genres, Nausicaä is centered around action (Hayao Miyazaki style mind you), and YKK is a slice of life meditation, they both share the same post apocalyptic theme about how to deal with the humanities dark sides. Both are incredible masterpieces that I can not recommend enough.

Both have similar themes of slice and life and have cute stories. The main characters like helping others out regardless of what they get in return.  
reportRecommended by Dignity
Post-apocalyptic slice-of-life series. YKK has more iyashikei/"healing" in it. 
reportRecommended by flomu
When i read Emma, there's a this weird feeling that sometimes made me remember YKK, don't know what is it that tough... Well, just try one of them if you had read the others, maybe you will experience this weird feeling i was talking about. 
reportRecommended by Fazerr
Both have the same depressing but oddly calming atmosphere. You know that it will be the end. Both will give you some level of sadness, but not the kind that will make you cry loudly; the kind that will make you suffer in silence.  
reportRecommended by donut_jelly
It showcases the lives of people who live virtually immortal lives and the bittersweet feelings of nonchalance as months and years, decades and centuries go by.  
reportRecommended by SurgePlatinumSky
Both are a slice of life in a unique setting with stunning artwork and pleasant characters. The female leads of Amira and Alpha are both outgoing and adventurous women with compassionate hearts and a love of life. While Otoymegatari focuses almost exclusively on romance, Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou does have some hints of romance every now and then, and, like Otoyomegatari, it has a younger boy/older female "couple".  
reportRecommended by blackrose108
It has the same general feeling, as if you are peering into the world and lives of another. I would reccomend Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou to slightly more mature audiences becuase of the way it tells its story, and some of its deeper ideas, but if you liked Maiko-san Chi no Makani-san, then you should give this a try too.

At first glance, both series seems to share different premises with a different setting. Yet both series adapts well with their slice of life tones. The main characters in both series forms prominent relationships with others that become a focus to witness. There is a gentle atmosphere in both series as well that define innocence and tranquility. Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou has more elements of sci-if while Shirogane no Nina is crafted by realism. However, both series still convey their slice of life tones in a profound way that is appreciated. Recommended for fans of slice of life.

Kabocha is a lovely read. And so is YKK. Both are more about pictures and pauses rather than action and dialogues. Great examples of slice of life.

I'm having a hard time comparing anything to YKK because it found a place in my heart where nothing else has ever wondered, and any comparison seems wrong after that... Still Coo's World does have many of the qualities that made YKK so good. Be sure to read both.

They are both beautifully well-crafted manga with exquisite panel placement and visual flow. They are both treats to the readers who like to take their time reading while carefully analyzing everything each panel has to offer. There is a very well thought-out attention to detail where the visual display is concerned. They both have somewhat long monologues/narrations that induce feelings of melancholia on the reader.

If you like slice-of-life, iyashi, quiet, slow peaceful stories with beautiful art and let's face it: pretty girls, then this manga is also for you. 
reportRecommended by Jiji
They are both iyashikei, slice of life series full of peaceful, growing feelings about girls/androids in a country town living the "small town life". YKK is one of the most wonderful, peaceful manga/anime series I have ever encountered. It is absolutely one of my favourites and I have watched it multiple times to remember those peaceful,contented feelings. Little Forest, a manga about a city girl who moves to the country to cook and live off the land, focuses on agriculture, cooking, and self discovery. The small town moments of it, along with the organic, get back to nature aspects really bring about the iyashikei, slice-of-life  read more

Typical Ashinano story: taking a slice out of an ordinary person's life and giving it a few surreal twists of fantasy and/or sci-fi. 
reportRecommended by Yuunagi
Sci-fi slice-of-life! Both series are set in a future where things have changed immensely from the world that we know, but the new technology and way of life that are present don't exist to make things cooler or more dramatic; instead, they are about people living their everyday lives. Both series feature a relaxed pace and many panels that focus on the beauty of the world that the characters live in. 
reportRecommended by Anomalous
Both manga feature photography as one of the main subjects. Kimiiro Focus is a harem manga with the protagonist trying to capture the beauty of his models. Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou is a mature slice of life series with the main character preserving the memories of fleeting experiences. 
reportRecommended by Yuunagi
They have a bit similar feel of mystery and relaxed pace in them.  
reportRecommended by Nyyppa
Both talk about a young girl traveling and both are very lighthearted story, without any battles, or deep plot. If you enjoyed one you'll probably enjoy the other 
reportRecommended by CrashRHCP
Post-apocalyptic Japan from the perspective of non-human girl(s). Detailed backgrounds with ruins, buildings submerged or destroyed, roads in bad state, fallen signs and wild nature scattered. Pretty well made characters. 
reportRecommended by BlindNoldor
Both feature a younger male/older female pairing (though with less of a focus in YKK). Though WnS is far more dramatic than YKK, both are delicately-told stories with themes of growing older, the passage of time, and changing one's perspective through life's stages.

Similar artstyle, Ooishi Masaru truly tries to imitate Ashinano's sketchy drawings. Also, it is a nice sci-fi story in the near future with a cute woman at its center, and beautiful natural scenery.

Light-hearted slice of life. Both stories gives the same warm feeling. They may be a little naive, but it only makes them better. Artwork is kinda similar. 
reportRecommended by Gokudo-kun
Barakamon and Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou are slice of life series that expresses themselves with great characters. The lighthearted mood with the natural setting away from industrialization gives a realistic feeling. There is great focus on characters' expresses in everyday life situations. Recommended for fans with strong interest in slice of life.
